Redemption – Hebrew: gaal

Redemption – Romans 6:15-19

Hebrew: gaal גאל means to deliver, avenge, act as a kinsman, can be similar to kapar meaning to ransom

Greek: exagorazo means to buy as like purchasing a slave and giving him freedom

“Therefore, what conclusion should we reach? ‘Let’s go on sinning, because we’re not under legalism but under grace?’  Heaven forbid!  Don’t you know that if you present yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, then, of the one whom you are obeying, you are slaves – whether of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to being made righteous? By God’s grace, you, who were once slaves to sin, obeyed from your heart the pattern of teaching to which you were exposed; and haver you had been set free from sin, you became enslaved to righteousness.  (I am using popular language because your human nature is so weak)” (CJB).
